no actionable intelligence requiring increased security. then, the attack. and obama and his administration wouldn't call it terrorism for 14 days. but the evidence is piling up on barack obama. within hours of the attacks, obama officials received numerous intelligence reports indicating the attacks were organized and al qaeda was involved. communications intercepted between al qaeda and libyan militants, bragging about the attack. every sign pointed to terrorism. but for two long weeks, obama and his team blamed... a video. why? for political reasons. it was in obama's interest to not portray the attack as terrorism on the anniversary of 9/11. the intelligence was there. clear signs of rich, but campaign politics came first. the evidence is mounting as more questions arise, what did this president know? and when did he know it? >> sean: pretty serious. what's more important, big bird or -- let's see, security requests denied, lies that this was a spontaneous attack on this consulate that murdered four people, protecting al qaeda in the process because they were the ones responsible. then,
scandal on libya. we are finding out that the obama administration was warned, they were requested aid by ambassador stevens. they refused to put up a barbed wire fence because it might look bad like it might look bad to investigate leads at the ft. hood terrorist and vulght, 13 or 14 people killed there, 4 people killed here. they lie about a video when they knew immediately afterward, they had direct evidence that this was a planned attack, not as a result of a video, but to admit otherwise, would show the wholesale breakdown of his policy which is do say, if you are nice to al qaeda and woo them, they will like us and we won't have any more war with them. the truth is, laura logan has even pointed out how felashes that was, there is no such thing as a kinder, gentler taliban. there is no such thing as an al qaeda that doesn't want to kill us, even if we remove ourselves from the middle-east-- >>> listen, i hope obama brings up shamus the dog again. that's how small -- you know why? then i get to play the tape of obama admitting that he ate a dog. if that's how small they want to go
administration in a surly think we have done in the obama administration. a significant increase in regulation the first couple of years of the obama administration. aid is adding on, piling on. and what happens is they miss the forest for the trees because they are not very good at prioritization. what the end up doing is focusing on every little detail rather than on setting the rules of the road for markets to work. neil: mitt romney. you talk about how they're is a need for regulation. don't go into overkill on this. you could buy extension in the killing people. but i was realizing that a number of health regulators were looking into things like the distance food carts in manhattan from the streets curve. >> showed it to the soda is. >> my point is they get caught up in silly stuff. stuff like this i would imagine is a touch more important. >> that as well as trying to say. the catchy thing, the interesting thing. i think he should just go to hollywood. he really likes to be entertaining and find out -- find out what people find interesting. mitt romney, he showed that at the last debate.
know, this is not speculation. i have lived the last four years under the obama administration, and i've watched my company be cut in half. today we're very profitable, and i don't want to go through another four years under the obama administration where i have to downsize again. >> you cut the company in half as a result of tax policy? is that what happened? >> no, it had nothing to do with tax policy. it had to do with the tightening of the banks. tightening of money. when they gave t.a.r.p. money to the banks, they should have told them to loan it out. instead, the banks kept the money, bought back their own bonds and stock. they made their own balance sheets very good. they didn't spread the money around to businesses that were starving for financing. as a result, we had to cut our company in half. we had to lay off 7,000 employees and be very lean and mean to survive. well, it was a very unpleasant experience, and i don't feel like going through it again, but this was before obamacare, before increasing my taxes. i can see the future. >> it sounds like you're dealing with the re

to defend the obama administration's handling of the terrorist attack on the american consulate in libya. the attack killed a u.s. embass door and three other americans. tom fitzgerald is following this. this is a political battle. >> reporter: it really has and showed no sign of letting up. the republicans have been accusing the obama administration of not doing enough to protect the consulate, while democrats say the focus should be on fining who was responsible for that attack in ben ghazi on september 11th, not the deciding blame. obama administration officials headed to capitol hill to tell the house oversight committee that the security every ben ghaz icons late was based of the -- on the assessments of the resources on the ground and what is available. the critics were quick to point out that the administration, in their words, has been trying to cover up or play down the attacksby first describe it, and that it got out of hand. there were questions between the disagreements between the state department and u.s. officials in washington over large the security force should be. >> w

,,tom. 3&at first... the obama administration's ambassador to the united nations blamed the attack on spontaneous protests overran anti-muslim ilm. film.suuan rice said she also discounted he idea that ambassador chris stevens..t's now not clear what, if anythhnn, she wassbasing that believed thattthe attack was just the result of a spontaaeous protest. bollon says: "when the state department's ccreer bureaucracy takes on a leftist tries to separate itself ffom a liberal wwite house, you kkow the whitt house has got a problem." the whhte house denies thereewas a cover- pbout security at the u-s ns - compouud... and whether the state department ignored siins steven's death. issues... in college divisive - admissions. toddy... the u-- supreme court will ake on again.thii time... i a case involving theeuniversity of texassat austii. the case at issue was brought bb a white woman... naaed abigail fisher... who claims thh universitt chose not to admit her because oo her race. the university says that using is the only way to keep the ns - student body diverse... and en
named, ken lay, the head of enron. but here's the problem. obama administration didn't take down ken lay. he was taken down during the bush administration. kozlowski was prosecuted during the bush administration. bernie madoff, his son turned him in under the bush administration. where are the heads of j.p. morgan and country wide, all these companies that caused that epic collapse, also under the bush administration? did they get prosecuted under the obama administration? the definitive answer is hell no. they didn't get prosecuted so much, president obama couldn't find a single one prosecuted under his watch that he could put in that ad. so what's sad is unfortunately president obama isn't that much better than mitt romney on this issue. i wish he was tough on wall street so that that ad could make a ton of sense. look is mitt romney going to let off wall street even more? of course! of course! he's going to get rid of dodd frank. it's incredibly weak and mitt romney instead of wanting weak regulations wants none. is it right to compare sesame street and wall street? absolutely. it giv
of the reaction in the u.s. cat at bishops to the obama administration roles and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, this is the elephant in the room. most catholics disagree with teaching contraception. >> i'm one of the cat. [laughter] >> in this case, the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved in the have their freedoms, to comment their religious freedom. in addition, catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so you have here the attention of these two different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first of these churches to show them how to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their employees. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other proponents of religious liberty oppose the obama administration regulations. through his great credit, the obama administration had proposed a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception, but the institution would not have to pay for it. now, ms. luke
in the obama administration. he hasn't given an architecture an intellectual framework for the public to grasp on to. which would have justified the stimulus and health care bill. >> right. i think one of the reasons he hasn't done it is he is afraid if he does that it will make him vulnerable. so he tries to stay to the context, this policy for this reason, as opposed to an overarching plan for what it means to create opportunity. >> eliot: ken unfortunately time is running short. should democrats be panicking or is this a overreaction to one bad evening? and then next week the president will turn to normal. >> they are certainly putting a lot of stock into the vice presidential debate do think this greater unsettled atmosphere around the obama campaign and the administration but we always knew this was going to be a tight race some of the lead was going to shrink headed into the debates and into november, so i don't think we have seen quite as major of a shift as some democrats are fearing at that point. >> eliot: tricia last question to you. the democrats are putting all
they're finding facts and critics say it is all about finding fault with the obama administration with 27 days left until the presidential election. so the goal of this hearing, again, live pictures, is to learn what exactly happened in benghazi, in libya, in the months before and the day of this september 11th attacks in these two compounds. the u.s. consulate there on the left, and also that safe house just about half a mile away. you know the story. four americans killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens, foreign service officer shawn smith and security officers glen doherty and ty woods. the chair of the government committee that initiated this hearing opened up by saying the state department was, quote, coming clean as it released new details just last night. those details include officials saying that attack at the consulate in benghazi was impossible to defend. and today, a regional security officer testified the assault was something the united states had never seen before at a diplomatic outpost. >> i had not seen an attack of such ferocity and intensity previously in libya.
't think they were responsible, but the careerist on the one hand and the obama administration on the other. you know, you have backlit with secretary clinton. she is on record several times as saying the violence was caused by the video, famously, ambassador rice said that the white house spokesman said it. but if there is consistency, it appears to be in the rear side of the state department, saying from the get-go that it was a terrorist attack. that will be an interesting centerpiece to this hearing today. is this a real bureaucracy versus the white house? jenna: let's talk about the procedure. you were an ambassador, he worked for the state department, you were a member of the president's cabinet -- just the same as ambassador rice at this time. as information breaks and comes in, is there any chance that different people get different information and perhaps that happened here? >> yes, well, i was not a member of the president's cabinet. this may be part of the problem. all you have to cabinet officials in the state department. that is a prescription for potential trouble. but obvious
department. reporter: one of of the big questions is why the obama administration originally blamed in incident on an internet video. od rarhharessman jasffz wh lyaast wk. >> when i was in libya a good part of the day never once did a person ever mention a vid. never. and i am fascinated to know and understand from the president of enidtates, fro ety,ndro na ty can justify that this video caused this attack. it was a terrorist attack. >> reporter: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge joins us live in washington. we know you've bati t r h oni t cma s ste dartmen in that late-day briefing to reporters made his position known drawing a sharp distinction from the white house narrative that was a demonstration that spun out of control. >> they hd a broad news confenceveheho thtevnar department's position, i repeat, never been the state department's position that in fact this assault was part of a row actio reaction to a s croray numous tnes ast-bwers. >> reporter: committee members told this morning in opening statements that there was a preoccupation in washington with re
